It has been a while since I last done a collection update, which if you have been following my blog is due to a variety of reasons. Not to worry yourselves though as I am back with another update and Haul, so strap and and get ready for some awesome covers directly beamed into your eyeholes.
Marvel Age Issue #52
The first issue I am going to start with is this beautiful Marvel Age Issue #52. I was not actively looking for this comic, however on one of my eBay binges (when I search silver surfer comics and go mad) I came across this issue for only 99p. How could anyone, let alone myself turns this down.
Artwork on the front is just a perfect enticement to draw you into the Silver Surfer world. This was magically created by Marshall Rogers.
Now the quality of the comic itself is not great but I am happy with it considering the price I paid (I will look out for a more pristine copy).
Marvel Age was a promotion comic book released between 1983 – 1994. It was a monthly collection of previews showcasing the new release from the Marvel world. This issue from July 1987 has its focus on the Silver Surfer. It contains some really cool articles about the comic book including;
- The History of the Silver Surfer
- Silver Surfer New Projects
- The new Silver Surfer Series
There is a lot of silver surfer knowledge jammed into this little comic magazine so I can not wait to get stuck in and read them all.
Silver Surfer Vol 8, Issue #7
Issue #7 is the latest release from the Main Line Silver Surfer comic book, brought to us by the amazing Dan Slott, Michael Allred and Laura Allred.
This issue finds the Silver Surfer and Dawn Greenwood back in space after some time saving Earth ‘again’. Being back in space however does not mean they are safe? or does it.
I will be doing a review of this issue soon so keep an eye on my twitter for that.
Silver Surfer Volume 5.
This was a big hole in my collection and I am very happy to see it filled. Volume 5 of the Silver Surfer main line comic was released during 2003 – 2004. It focuses on tow major storylines which I have obtained some synopsis for below.
Communion (Issues 1 – 6)
Small children from around the globe are vanishing without a trace, and reports of the appearance of a gleaming alien figure at the time of their abductions are growing in number. For single mother Denise Walters, caring for her young autistic daughter has been the primary focus of her life – she never imagined becoming embroiled in alien abduction and mankind’s possible Armageddon. But that’s exactly what happens when the Silver Surfer appears in Denise’s home and whisks her daughter away. As Denise delves further into her daughter’s abduction, she begins unraveling the mystery of the Surfer’s motives. Is his strange and alien mind plotting mankind’s salvation, or its ultimate destruction?
Revelation (Issues 7 – 14)
Revelation follows the story where communion left off. Though the Silver Surfer has reunited Denise Waters with her daughter, Stewart Acheron intends to claim Ellie as his own – by any means necessary.
I can not wait to finally read these two storylines as I have heard some good stuff about them. I have also noticed that Communion is available in TB so I will be adding that to my next amazon basket. I have so far been able to see if they made Revelation into a TB so if you know that they have please let me know in the comments below.
Silver Surfer TB Haul
The final part of my haul for now is 4 new TB collections. These are all from the modern 2014+ issues. The main reason I get TB’s along side the actual comics is for a couple of reasons. Firstly I love to collect any release of the Silver Surfer and secondly it enables me to board and bag the issues and still be able to enjoy reading the story lines.
Silver Surfer, Volume 1 – New Dawn
he universe is big. Bigger than you could ever imagine. And the Silver Surfer, lone sentinel of the skyways, is about to discover that the best way to see it…is with someone else. Meet Dawn Greenwood, the Earth girl who’s challenged the Surfer to go beyond the boundaries of the known universe – into the strange, the new and the utterly fantastic! Who is the Never Queen? How is the universe’s future tied into her very existence? And why is she trying to destroy the Surfer?
